know their contest pretty
well, but some of them, at
times, have problems working
with kids. So we're developing
programs now for the non-
faculty coaches through the
Oakland County Athletic
Directors Association and
through the MHSAA and try-
ing to get that off ground."
Many of what Gershman
calls "walk-on coaches" have
"played in high school or col-
lege but really don't have the
educational background to
know about the psychology of
kids and the educational
foundation of learning!"
Another issue, substance
abuse, goes beyond the play-
ing fields or gyms. Gershman,
who is a coordinator with the
federally funded Midwest
Regional Center for Drug-
Free Schools and Com-
munities, sets up chemical
abuse programs for Berkley's
athletes before each season.
Speakers are brought in, deal-
ing with subjects such as
steroids or the effects of drugs
on families. Each team then
meets as a group with the
coaches and parents to
discuss team rules and
guidelines.
"It opens up the lines of
communication and gets
parents into the program,"
says Gershman. "It's a good
way to build communication
between the three groups!'
Stone adds, "All schools are
interested in the drugs that
students are possibly taking.
We try to give good education
in our health classes. Coaches
will go over it, too, because we
will not tolerate the use of
drugs, alcohol and so on, on
the fields!'
The three suburban ADs
have much in common. Ger-
shman and Rosenthal see
each other 'at monthly
Southeastern Michigan
Association league meetings
and Berkley and Oak Park

-

play each other in several
sports. "We find out that we
all have the same problems
and the same worries and the
same concerns!' says Ger-
shman. "They're both great
guys and they both have
helped me a lot. They were
both in this job before I was.
So they'll call me when they
' have a problem and vice ver-
sa!'
And all three agree that
sports have a solid educa-
tional value.
"The educational value of
sports, being involved in
sports and working with a
team, learning about respon-
sibility, putting the 'we'
before the 'me' is a great
lesson that you probably can't
teach in the classroom," says
Gershman.
Stone echoes Gershman's
feelings. "Some students will
learn more on an athletic
field at times — and I'm not
knocking any other class —
than you might learn in a
social studies class or a math
class. They learn how to get
along with their teammates,
they learn how to accept
defeat. Because in life you
will not win at all times. So
you have to know how to ac-
cept defeat, but you have to be
able to say, 'Hey, I'm going to
come back and try harder to
do better! That's what you
need in the business world, in
the real world?'
Rosenthal notes, "Some of
the children that we have, if
it were not for athletics,
would not find success in
anything. These kids find suc-
cess in athletics and can grow
and channel that into other
areas. So if they see that they
can do well in athletics and
they see what the hard work
does for them in that, then
they can say, 'Hey, I can do
that in my studies as
well."' D

hen the San Fran-
cisco 49ers go on off-
ense against the
Cincinnati Bengals Sunday
in Super Bowl XXIII, the on-
ly Jewish pro football team-
mates in the last 30 years,
San Francisco tackle Harris
Barton and tight end John
Frank will line up next to
each other.
Frank, twice sidelined by
minor injuries during the
past season, caught a five-
yard touchdown pass from

quarterback Joe Montana to
clinch the 49ers' NFC cham-
pionship game win over the
Chicago Bears. Barton, in his
second pro season had a
strong year blocking for Mon-
tana and the 49er runners.
Last year he was runner-up in
voting for "Offensive Rookie
of the Year" in the NFC.

The 49ers' and Bengals'
championship-game wins
ended Super Bowl hopes for
Mary Levy, coach of the Buf-
falo Bills, and rookie tight
end Brent Novoselsky of the
Bears.
